I Love Lucy didn't work on The Hallmark Channel as a regular series on the actual schedule, but it seems the classic sitcom has worked in marathons as Hallmark has scheduled another marathon! They will air the marathon on Sunday, May 2, 2010 from 9am-4am...yes that is 17 straight hours of Lucy! The last time Hallmark aired a marathon was back in February on President's Day. This marathon kicks off with the episode "Fred and Ethel Fight" at 9am.
View the full episode info for this marathon and get ready to spend this Sunday with Lucy all-day!
